Archive-name: info/spacedrives/World Patents List - June 1996 Abstract: This report results from an extensive survey of various Patents Databases, searching for all patents relating to the non-rocket space propulsion concept (i.e. Spacedrives). Definition: Spacedrive is the generic term used to denote a mechanism, or principle by which a spaceship can be propelled - a device, not a rocket - that would not have to carry reaction mass to throw away.

Compilers Notes: This listing, and other spacedrives info, will not be automatically posted but will be made available via a website in the near future.
